The Assumption College Department of Athletics has announced that Jeremy Alley-Tarter, of Oak Bluffs, has earned a coveted spot on the 2016-17 Assumption College Men's Track and Field team. Alley-Tarter, Class of 2018, will compete during the Greyhounds' spring season, which picks up on March 25 at the Bridgewater State University Invitational.

"I'm very excited with the progress of our men's and women's track programs," said head coach Stacie Wentz. "We broke a record 25 school records during our indoor season and hope to carry this progress into the outdoor seasons. In addition, the men's and women's teams had their best finishes ever at the Northeast-10 Conference Championships and we had several athletes win individual titles. We have a young team, of which more than half are freshmen, so we have a bright future."

The Assumption Men's Track and Field team finished their indoor season in record style. The Men's team came in sixth in the indoor Northeast-10 Conference Championships, the highest finish in the program's history. In addition, two school records were broken by Jeremy Alley-Tarter '18 (500m) and Justin Ireland '20 (60m).
